Paul Miller
Executive Director of Teach For America-Los Angeles

Paul Miller is the Executive Director of Teach For America-Los Angeles, whose mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting our nation's most promising future leaders in the effort. Teach For America does this by building a corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all academic majors who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders in ensuring educational equity and excellence for all children.

Before joining Teach For America-Los Angeles, Miller led economic development efforts in Camden, New Jersey serving as President of the Cooper Grant Neighborhood Association where he managed a $7 million housing development, and as President of the Board of Directors of the Camden Empowerment Zone Corporation, where he cultivated diverse constituencies and assembled local Boards of supporters in civic, political and financial circles to drive the transformation of the city’s economic development landscape. Miller first came to Camden as a Teach For America corps member.

Prior to joining the Camden corps, Miller worked and studied in the UK, pursuing a PhD in International Studies at Cambridge University. A native of California, Paul holds a BA in political science and psychology from the University of Southern California, and an MSc in Political Economy from the London School of Economics. National fellowships that Miller has received include the Marshall Scholarship, Truman Scholarship, and Galbraith Scholarship, for leadership in public service.
